KAT500 band change fault
Just hooked up my KAT500 and KPA500 to the 6400M. I only have one antenna, an OCF dipole and I went thru all the bands and trained the tuner. Often when I change bands the tuner does not change bands and load the stored memory, then the tuner goes into a fault condition. Reset the fault and tap the key a couple times and usually the tuner retunes and works ok. Sometimes it recalls the stored memory and other times it goes into a tuning cycle. Sometimes I must reset the fault on the tuner, push the tune button on the radio and then the tune button on the tuner and it does a full retune.
Having the amp online does not affect the operation of the tuner. And it does it on both SSB and CW.
I turned the amp on standby to watch the band display and every time I change bands it is correctly shown on the amp's display. But the tuner does not automagically get that band change data and recall the stored memory so when I push the key or ptt the tuner goes into fault. The amp sees the band changes immediately but the tuner does not.
Maybe a timing issue? Does the delay on TX1 affect data going to the tuner? Or is it only for the ptt line to the amp?
